Williamson wants Kiwis bowling improvement

Ben Stokes bats

A cricket fan Saturday won $50,000 after taking a stunning one-handed catch in the third one-day global between New Zealand and Pakistan at University Oval.

And so it proved to be, as Pakistan went on to record their lowest ODI total in 25 years.

Skipper Kane Williamson top-scored for the hosts with 73 runs off 101 balls while Ross Taylor finished with a well-paced 52 off 64.

New Zealand has now consistently been improving its winning percentage in ODIs against Pakistan, which at the moment stands at 45.40 percent.

So far both Pakistani Bowling and Batting haven't been up to the mark; and if the batting lineup was yet unable to get rid of its fragile nature, the dependable bowling lineup also seemed struggling in New Zealand.

Once Taylor was gone, New Zealand began to collapse as Hasan Ali sliced through the lower order.

Incredibly, Pakistan were 2-3 when Boult got another delivery to move away, drawing an edge from Mohammad Hafeez (0).

Trent Boult did the initial damage, reducing Pakistan to 3/2 inside four overs. Only Daniel Vettori's 5 for 7 against Bangladesh and Shane Bond's 6 for 19 against India have come at a lower average than Boult's.

Boult was easily the most successful bowler with five wickets, while Munro and Ferguson claimed two wickets each. He took ten wickets in the previous series, against West Indies, at an average of just 10 runs per wicket. They had looked to push on at 209-4 but lost their last six wickets for 48 runs. Their collective average of 17.10 is the second worst in any bilateral series with a minimum of 20 innings.

He acknowledged that the top order was not able to perform well against the new ball bowlers.
